Shopping our Stash #105 - Your Oldest Stamp!

This week at Shopping our Stash, we want you to pull out your oldest stamp, and USE IT. This could be tough! In my case, I have given away a lot of older stamps that I wasn't using, so I've used the oldest stamp set I have. It's an Inkadinkado set - very well loved, but not lately. And it's so well-loved that no amount of gentle washing is going to bring back that cling - the biggest stamp is about a hair away from ripping apart ;) 

Supplies: Versamark; Stampendous Clear Detail embossing powder; Barn Door distress ink; Labels 5 Nesties; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; red rhinestones from Dollarama

All the stamps used on the card are from the same set - did I ever have to search for the sentiment! It had fallen out of the package but the other sentiments are no longer of this earth. I toldja it was old!  The sentiment & the mat are traced with glitter pen. 

Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, June 17th - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!

Be right back with ONE MORE post (eeeeek! so excited!)

Fabulous card! I LOVE the glitter on the sentiment and frame!! I think i'm like you, my 'oldest' are gone to new homes!

What do you know, I have this stamp set too! It's still one of my go-tos when a sympathy card is required. Love the way you've used it here!

I was just sitting here admiring your pretty card and the beautiful stamps you used to make it. Then I started wishing that this set was part of my collection. And then, I realized that it is! Duh! I have had it forever and had completely forgotten it! So thanks for that lol and the beautiful inspiration. I love how you used it to make your own DP - it is very elegant.

Hugs, Dawn
